Owned by American expat Peggy Hancock since 1980, this little gem of a tea room is located in Galerie Vivienne, one of Paris’s loveliest passages couverts (covered passageways).
In addition to a wide assortment of teas, they serve wonderful cakes, scones, brownies and a delicious fruit crumble. Brunch and light lunch fare is also available.
There is seating both inside the salon as well as “outside” under the glass ceiling of the passage.
Reservations are recommended.
